Chris & Mary Granberry
During the summer of 2000, Chris took a team of youth and youth leaders from Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, to the Yakama reservation for one week. The group hosted a children’s ministry in an empty lot and roofed and painted homes for needy families. They were amazed by the poverty they encountered, heart-broken by the needs of the children, and shocked to discover that many of the kids had never heard of Jesus or seen a Bible. This experience had a deep and unexpected impact on Chris. Over the next year and a half God worked in his heart. It became clear that he was being called to move his family to the reservation and expand the ministry to the Yakama people.
Chris, his family, and the Sacred Road Ministries team will be planting an evangelical church in the town of White Swan, hosting a Bible study and children’s ministry each week, holding weekly Backyard Bible Clubs for children, evangelizing and discipling at-risk teenagers, and organizing and hosting the short-term work teams that come each spring and summer. The plan is to continue to lovingly respond to the “felt needs” of the people until the Lord softens their hearts and they are prepared to hear and receive the Gospel.
Chris and Mary have four children: Ann Marie, Beth, Morgan, and David.
